Clear Your Shelf!


Hosted by I’m A Reader Not A Writer


I loved the idea of this hop.  This has nothing to do with my published books whatsoever – I get to give away books of my shelves that I no longer need!

I have five books I’m going to be giving away.  Instead of setting up a Rafflecopter for each, I’ll just choose winners from the same widget, and then in order offer them by email their choice from the list. I’m a little behind tonight on getting my post up, so I don’t have the list of titles with me, but I will update this post with them as soon as possible :)



a Rafflecopter giveaway

    My favorite book of 2012 was either The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay or Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire. They were both just such incredible, beautiful books! Thanks for the giveaway and the chance to win! Happy New Year! (:

  2. Heather Marie Adkins Says:

    I haven’t read “Beautiful Disaster” yet, though it’s on my TBR, but I lovelovelove that title! I’ve never heard of The Sea of Tranquility *runs to check it out*. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Ana Smith Says:

    My favorite book of 2012? I can’t pick just one. It would probably be a choice between The Sea of Tranquility, Iced, Pushing the Limits… :D

  4. Heather Marie Adkins Says:

    You’re def allowed to have more than one… :) That’s two votes for The Sea of Tranquility! I have to read it, for sure.

  5. Lisa DeGraaf Says:

    David Copperfield by Charles Dickens followed closely by Love Isn’t Supposed to Hurt by Christi Paul

  6. Heather Marie Adkins Says:

    Someone who actually likes Dickens! That is one of the few authors my husband and I disagree on; I read and loved Dickens in high school, and again in college :)

  7. Monica C. Says:

    My favorite read of 2012 is The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan.

  8. Shelly Hammond Says:

    I read a lot of good books in 2012 so it’s hard to pick just one, but I think the one that stands out the most is,” The Crimson League (The Herezoth Trilogy)”, by Victoria Grefer . I wasn’t expecting it to be nearly as good as it was but when I read it, I was so surprised as it turned out to be completely brilliant as she brought an entire world to life. I loved it. Also Phantom by Laura DeLuca and Unencanted by Chanda Hahn stand out.

  9. Livija S Says:

    Insurgent by veronica Roth

  10. Beth DiIorio Says:

    Two favorites of mine this year are Project ELE by Rebecca Gober & Courtney Nuckels (sci-fi/dystopian) and The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson (thriller/paranormal).

  13. Kamla L. Says:

    I’ve read so many great books this year it’s difficult to choose just one or to even narrow it down to just a few. Not to mention that I’m a bit behind, so some of my favs I read this year were published prior to 2012.
    The Taker (book1) and The Reckoning (book 2)by Alma Katsu
    Theft of Sword/Rise of Empire/Heir of Novron (Riyria Revelations) by Michael J Sullivan
    The Warded Man and The Desert Spear by Peter V Brett
    The Black Prism and The Blinding Knife by Brent Weeks
    Tart by Lauren Dane
    The Many Sins of Lord Cameron by Jennifer Ashley
    When The Duchess Said Yes by Isabella Bradford
    Lady Awakened by Celia Grant
    There are so many others…I could go on for a while. I just started Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes and already I’m loving it.

  14. ryan snyder Says:

    well, I have a few. I loved blood red road, Assassin’s curse, A soul for trouble, Pushing The limits, and so many more! ugh. I have trouble picking absolute favorites. lol
